We provide education, advocacy and experiences to grow local food.
We are leaders in a community where all people can grow and enjoy healthy, local food.
Community Crops was started with one community garden in 2003, and has grown over the years to become a successful organization. Crops now has nine community garden sites, a training farm, a successful Community Supported Agriculture program, youth garden and cooking education, a regular farmers’ market stand, and more.
Community Crops currently has six full-time staff positions, one part-time position, three AmeriCorps members, and numerous volunteers who help with our projects, in addition to the many farmers and gardeners who participate in the program.

Crops is funded by a number of local and national funding sources including:
